Had a nice sleep in. Got up, had Milo cereal! (love the stuff, never normally in the house, fiance bought some for me!). Went out and worked on the bike. New throttle cable went in with ease, new rear wheel and tyre went in with ease, even polished up the drum brake cover before I put it back toether and gave the polished alloy a coat of clear to protect it (hard to get to to polish). I even cleaned up all the bolts and chain adjuster hardware. Tracked down an electrical problem and now have the front brake switch working nicely and the parking lights. Pulled apart teh old mastery cylinder I have to rebiuld and let it soak. Had a lovely late lunch with the fiance and went out for an hour's ride with a shiny new helmet (which is fantastic!) and new tyre (which even though it still had mould release on it, was faar superoir to the old tyre in every respect!). It's also a lot more confidence inspiring having a nice solid alloy wheel out the back instead of a dodgey, rusty rimmed old spoked wheel (which has caused two flats in the six months I have owned it, damn spokes!). Was perfect motorcycle weather, 25 degrees or so, no wind, bugger all cars around due to holidays, and quite a few bikes, all of whom nodded to me! What a lovely day! Hope you all had nice days too! Regards, Andrew.
